Our attorneys are experienced commercial litigators who have won many trial cases for our clients. We do not hesitate to take your case to trial if it is the best approach to getting a just result and the compensation you deserve. We are known in the courtrooms of DuPage County and throughout Northern Illinois as tenacious advocates for our clients.

Contract Law

The law firm of Edgerton & Edgerton also provides legal counsel in contract matters. When one or other party in a contract fails to meet the terms and obligations of the contract, a remedy can be sought through a breach of contract civil suit. Our experienced attorneys work to protect your rights in a contract dispute, whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant. If you are concerned about the potential for a suit against you, or someone is planning to break a contract in which you are involved, we can help develop an action plan and protect your interests. In any breach of contract case, we will vigorously argue the fine points of the contract, and litigate the matter of damages and compensation in favor of our client to the maximum extent possible.

The law firm of Edgerton & Edgerton has years of experience in litigating a wide variety of contracts, from lease agreements and private company employee agreements, to government contracts for public works projects and real estate contracts. In contract development, as in many other areas, the best defense can be a great offense. We are especially adept at strategizing with clients to develop sound and equitable terms in a contractual agreement, before the document is signed.
